Bad News for `Anchorwoman' As Fox Series Is Yanked After One Low-Rated Episode
LOS ANGELES Emotion: travel Here's news that Fox's series "Anchorwoman" wouldn't want to deliver: It's been canceled after one low-rated airing. The debut of the reality show about Lauren Jones' attempt to turn herself into a news anchor for a Texas TV station drew an estimated 2.7 million viewers Wednesday, according to preliminary figures from Nielsen Media Research.
That number is about a third of the viewership Fox attracted a week earlier with the finale of its popular "So You Think You Can Dance." Jones was a Barker Beauty on "The Price Is Right," Miss New York and featured WWE Diva before the series put her into the newsroom of KYTX Channel 19 in Tyler, Texas.
Unaired episodes of "Anchorwoman" will be available on Fox's website through Fox on Demand, the network said Thursday.
Fox is owned by News Corp.

I vaguely remember seeing promos about a blonde airhead with very large fake breasts doing the weather. Is that the one?
Well shoot, zero substance and limited eye candy. Who knew it would fail?

That's the one. Now if "The Girls Next Door" would just move off the air and out of the country and the Playboy mansion would go up in flames and Hugh Hefner drop dead, maybe we'd move a little closer to a saner world.
